As we have Calima (a very dry wind with sand from the Sahara) at the moment being outside is nothing for the faint hearted… Temperatures are around 33 – 36°, the air is dusty and sandy and it feels like a (dry) sauna… Cold liquids help.. Yet the side-effects are pronounced – Salut!
Therefore I decided to take some pictures of the cactus on our terrace as this was somehow in the shade and yet very nice… From the top it looks quite interesting already
Yet the real beauty is revealed from the side view
Loads of texture and detail
A bit more depth
and this time with bokeh
